Do you frequently feel like you are running around so fast being busy, that you’ve forgotten why you are even doing what you do every day? Are you searching for something more? Tired of running in circles, but not really living life with direction, purpose or passion? It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the drama of classes, family and work. Our lives are filled with distractions that take us away from living a life with Christ.
Lent is a great time to return to God and re-focus our lives to be more in line with Jesus. At First Lutheran, we have a tradition of offering a church-wide small group study. This year’s study will focus on the Wednesday evening worship sermon. Join a small group to dig a little deeper into how the sermon speaks to you. A discussion guide will be available each week. If you miss the sermon, it will be available on our website or on a CD which can be picked up in the church office.
I invite you to break away from your regular routine, join a small group and take some time to reflect on where God is calling you and to see how God is working in your life.
There are a variety of small-group meeting times. If you’ve been thinking of joining one of the existing weekly groups, Parent Share, The Story study group, Courageous Men and Coffee with Pastor Karyn are all doing the Lenten sermon study and are open for new folks to join. You can sign up at church, or online.
